Team Red Bull KTM pushing very hard in the 760 km of the sixth stage of the rally, which brought the riders in Calama, with all the 464 km of the special stage through the famous Atacama desert where navigation has also made the difference today. Despres and Faria, second and third today, checked quite easily the winner Lopez and advance in overall that's sounds a good result especially for the upcoming marathon stage. A very good  fifth place for Alex Botturi that seems to have found the regularity 'of the resulting placements and he is currently the best rider of the factory Husky.
